Folklore in Metz

Works by Janek Simon and by Slavs and Tatars are being shown at the Centre Pom­pidou in Metz at the museum’s exhibition Folk­lore. This show, focused on con­cepts of eth­nicity and ver­nacular cul­ture, presents a broad selec­tion of works from early moder­nism through the present, inc­luding such artists as Joseph Beuys and Július Koller. The exhibition demon­strates that despite progres­sing globalization, the local remains the touch­stone for many artists. The exhibition is open until 4 October 2020.
